Adding personality to a new build home
New build homes are typically ready to go homes that are modern and decorated simply so that you can put your own stamp on it. There are so many ways in which to add your own character into your home, from upgrading existing features using paint, fabrics and furnishings to completely doing your own DIY projects for a unique look.
See below for ideas on making a new build homely.

Consider upgrading an existing fitted kitchen by incorporating two tone cupboards that will add contrast to your kitchen. This will make your home feel less like a ready to go house and more like a personalised space designed by you.
7. Personalise a new build with your favourite furniture

Furnishings can make all the difference when styling a new build. If you love white walls and want to add a pop of colour, adding rich furnishings with a minimal colour palette can make a living room feel cozy and classy.
